Tracey was always the life of the party. Her uncles would pick on her to get her started. They never got anything over on her though. She would have them laughing so hard. She loved each of them and they loved her.
She was a loving person who enjoyed spending her time coloring, watching Paw Patrol and The Three Stooges while sitting at her desk doing her “work”. She would tell you, “I got work to do.”

She always enjoyed spending time with her friend Sonya, who she called Tonya because she could never say Sonya. They would go once a month for a girls day out to get their nails and toes done, go out to eat, and then go shopping. Tracey loved her “Tonya.” Tracey enjoyed it so much. When she got to where she couldn’t go anymore, Tonya would come to the house and do her nails.

Tracey loved getting visits from her brothers and sister-in-laws, and all her “boys”, the nephews and great nephews and her nieces and great nieces.
Tracey was very special to us. She was born with Down Syndrome and she was boss.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the Compassion Hospice Staff. Special thanks to Mia, Jennifer, Amanda and Tiffany as her main care-givers. Tracey loved them all. Thank you for caring for and loving Tracey.
